Abstract

This paper presents how a sound practical approach was designed and then implemented in a graduate asynchronous online course, including scaffolds before initiating class and starting new learning topics, transitions during the learning process in order to avoid the lack of personal touches and no-verbal cues, evaluations during and after each learning topic, and presentations on outcomes through the website (STEP). The effectiveness of STEP approach and students' perceptions of common factors in both on-line learning environment and traditional classroom: role of instructor, role of students, interactions, and learning materials, were examined after the course. Conclusion and recommendation of establishing active learning environment for distance learning courses are provided.
